Product Description

Before The Rolling Stones, The Dave Clark Five were seen as The Beatles' most serious rivals, with their hit "Glad All Over" knocking "I Want to Hold Your Hand" off the number one spot. They also followed in the Beatles footsteps by achieving chart success in America. As musical styles changed in the 60s, DC5 disbanded in 1970.

As a collection this hits all the DC5 buttons for UK and US fans. Most of the really major hits and more are here. Before I do details on the music, some background that may be of interest to newcomers.

Uniquely (so far as I know) amongst the 1960s biggest pop stars Dave Clark retained (or regained) complete control over his band's output and has controlled its re-issue very tightly in the subsequent years, with only very sporadic availability of their hits. This has had two effects: First, the band's output has been somewhat under-represented on "Classic Hits" radio stations around the world and perhaps diminished the memory of just how big they were, though it has to be said they were rather bigger in the USA than they were in their homeland UK. Second, there has been a healthy trade in used copies of the few re-releases that have happened, as well as, of course, a somewhat feverish 2nd hand market for the original hit singles and albums.

As a business strategy, keeping the market wanting more is based on a simple premise - namely that the demand would persist until one day a release like this one came along. Both Mr Clark, and we the great unwashed, are about to find out whether that strategy has worked. Your reviewer has always sensed a certain arrogance inherent in this strategy which leaves a bad taste, but that's just a personal feeling. There is no rule that says that a hit record becomes a commodity that should always be available - much as that is mostly the defacto case.

Anyway, enough of the business background, to the music!

For newcomers: This is mostly pop-rock music. Probably the kind of stuff that Bruce Springsteen would have been doing if he'd been a star in the 1960s.

Well I'll tell you what...I was at the Majestic Ballroom when the DC5 did 'Glad all over' never a noise like it....
I know people review music by what they hear but with bands like this you have to have had really experienced them before you can make any truly constructive comment.
Lets start by saying that the DC5 version of 'Do you love me' knocked Brian Pooles version into a cocked hat and was VERY close to the Isleys original with Mike Smiths vocals.
I know memory can fade a bit but what I remember of the music I heard live was pretty well what I hear on this CD, the Dave Clark Five were a bloody brilliant band of the sixties and I fear more appreciated by the by the yanks than over here.
I have a grand-daughter of 12 who has heard me play this CD and asked who it was because 'I liked that one...' and that's what it's about. Whether they were doing a foot stomping 'Glad all over' or the heart wrentching 'Everybody know's' the Dave Clark Five did great music and I'm 'glad' they were part of my teen years.
Great music, great value album....if you are into '60's....just buy it. 12/10

What makes this stand out: These are the ORIGINAL versions of the hits, just as they sounded on the radio (in the U.S., at least). (There are some "alternate" versions out there---extra screams, etc.---I prefer the original versions!) Included here are also some nice surprises...songs that may have not been monster smashes, but they are ALL great.I'll tell you what...Isn't something like "Do You Love Me" or "Glad All Over" miles better than nearly anything on the radio today???
The Beatles were always numero uno at our house in the sixties...but the DC-5 came close! I cannot ever imagine changing the radio station if any one of these tracks was booming away. Mike, Dave, Rick, Denny,and Lenny.....THANK YOU! What a thrilling musical legacy...sounds just as great after all these years.
Here's the breakdown on this set: Sound Quality: 5 stars. Packaging: Deluxe liner notes, first rate in every regard EXCEPT....NO SHRINKWRAP! Hence the deduction of 1 star...otherwise 5 stars all the way.

Now this is unexpected. Dave Clark is very protective of everything he's been involved in and it was a bit of a shock to see this in the schedules. A greatest hits package that can best be grouped into three sections: the bad, the good and the 'blimey, this is a surprise'

To get the negatives out of the way first: the sleeve is nothing but a disgrace. This isn't some sort of cheap K-Tel type budget release; it's from a man who keeps rigorous control over anything associated with the group and all those involved should be thoroughly ashamed by allowing this to pass quality control. The other negative is that this compilation contains songs that shouldn't be included and misses out on others that should. The accompanying booklet is OK but I would have preferred a bit more information on the tracks themselves. The title is also a bit of a misnomer, but more of that later.

Twenty three of the songs on here are identical to those of the long deleted `Glad All Over Again' package from 1993 but, with the improvement in technology over the preceding 15 years, and considering much of this was recorded on, by today's standards, anitiquated analogue machines, the quality is much improved. What isn't improved is the sequencing of tracks; they aren't in any chronological order, jumping from `Good Old Rock `n' Roll' (Dec 69) to `Sha-Na-Na Kiss Him Goodbye' (Oct 73) then back to `Here Come Summer' (Jul 70). The earlier songs fair no better with `Because' May 64) coming after `Catch Us If You Can' (Jul 65). There may very well be a reason behind this seemingly haphazard order but I can't think of one.

Anyway, to the good bits. This CD is a `tub-thumping' joy.
